Mountain Biking in the
Portes du Soleil - Châtel
The village of Châtel is a charming base for a summer holiday in the French Alps and a great place to enjoy mountain biking in the Portes du Soleil. It is located a little to the east of sister towns, Morzine and Les Gets, and enjoys all the same mountain scenery. At Clarian Chalets we offer a wonderful luxury chalet for Portes du Soleil biking, situated in Châtel and over-looking the mountains. With a hot tub and sauna as well as sumptuous bedrooms it is a great home to return to after a day on the mountains.
The mountains in the summer months are a playgound for mountain bikers and Châtel has many dedicated trails with lift systems running through the summer. Here are a collection of links and resources that will help you plan routes, make adventures and create a fabulous holiday.
The Châtel Bike Park Facebook Page provides a fantastic collection of information, photos and videos of what goes on. There are new trails and jumps that have been constructed since last summer with videos of the construction progress. The events of last summer are there including the Reboul Jam. And there is lots of footage of some fairly amazing stunts and biking.
